Virutex is bringing a combination miter/table saw, model TM33, to the U.S. market. It’s been available in Europe and South America and is especially popular with finish carpenters and custom woodworkers for job-site work, according to company president Alex Akavan.
“If you’re going to install base molding, you need to have a miter saw and you also need a table saw. And you have to transport two pieces of equipment to the job site because you have to measure the actual situation at the job site and cut there, too. You have to take the two separate tools that are big and heavy,” Akavan says.
“This machine is only 50 pounds and you can fold it up and carry it like a suitcase.”
The saw features a 2.4-hp, 110-volt, 1,800-watt motor and uses a 12” saw blade, according to the company.
It sells for $750.
